Retro Africa Inspired – Clash that print

Post image for Retro Africa Inspired – Clash that print

Our creative theme for May is retro Africa and the styling theme is (no surprise for this African theme) clashing prints.

I understand this could be a scary theme for some but you need to have fun with this one.

Think boldness and be eclectic. I adore Abbey Lees style she mixes textures, bold prints and crazy accessories into her outfits and looks awesome.

She’s a great inspiration!!!

Whenever I think of bold prints and clashing colour and textures I turn straight to Marc Jacobs; one of my favorite designers.

His Marc by Marc Jacobs ads encourage this trend to a ‘T’.  I love how there’s no rules. It doesn’t matter if the colours bounce off each other or the accessories don’t quite go. It’s all about the fun!

How we like to work this trend

Bold fabrics with graphic T’s (as above). Aztec patterns with ditsy floral. You need bold accessories so the prints don’t take over the whole look. Think wooden beads and patterned belts.

We’re really into ankle socks at the moment and I love them with clogs and wedges just remember it has to be in a contrast print thought to the rest of your outfit.

Our special shoots for this month  make me want to listen to M.I.A really loud and play dress up!
